Many times another question that I will be asked as a Long Island Real Estate Lawyer is, "Who exactly does the real estate broker represent?" In most cases, the real estate broker represents the seller so the buyer should be aware of this when dealing with the broker. The broker might not necessarily have their best interest in mind. Unless you enter into a specific buyer brokerage agreement with the broker that says on paper that the broker, in fact, represents you, they will represent the interests of the seller. I advise clients as a Long Island Real Estate Lawyer that you should be aware of that and be wary of any recommendations they might make. You should seek legal counsel before you sign anything provided to you by a broker.
